ECS is doing the drive train over the Winter and a local company is doing the suspension, brakes and steering box.

This is a local custom hot rod/fab shop that does killer work.
They have a full 4 bay workshop with lifts in one warehouse and a bead blasting, paint shop with oven in tandem building.

Some really nice toys on site.
I'll post pics up later after dinner.

Shoes off and getting an upgraded manicure is the visual but reality is more like:

Wish I got to see that one. Love the old stuff but also a fan of her biggest sleeper hit IMO. Have You Seen Me Lately.

If you're a fan and don't have it, get it.

I threw the best of on while anchored off of Sucha in the San Juan Islands this past July.
The girls were singing at the top of their lungs.
Liz couldn't believe that I picked that CD out but Wendy had 3 cases full of really great stuff, and that was one of them.
I took one for the team, but love it too.

A few pics of the shop. Didn't want to take lots of pics and look suspicious but they have a really nice setup with some great gear heads turning wrenches, painting etc.
